A florist says that we pride ourselves nowadays on the size of our carna tions, but the florists of 300 years ago grew carnations three to four inches across, as large as any that we see. and thought nothing of it. "All through Spain, southern France and Italy the carnation Is the favorite flower and has been for hundreds of 3-ears. but along the Mediterranean there are few glass houses, for iu pro tected situations and on southers fdopes of hills even delicate flowen grow outdoors all winter long am Moom as freely at Christmas as li July. "The big carnations, however, were not grown In Spain or Italy, but ii; England outdoors during the summe time and before glass houses wen known. , They may have grown just ns large carnation flowers in Spain as in England at that time, but in Eng land there was record made of the fact and also of the size, while in Spain 1here was not. Shakespeare mentions carnations and gillyflowers, or July flowers, together as blooming at the same season, which shows that the carnation was then a summer flower, whereas in our greenhouses it is now a winter bloomer. Plow the florists of those days treated the plants to ob tain blooms of such size nobody knows, for old time florists grew flowers in stead of writing books about them. So all we know Is that they had very large carnations In Queen Elizabeth's time without knowing how they were grown." St. Louis Globe-Democrat. kin .... 'P. THE BOIIBMAKER. Bathe. In Hot Water.

Mew Zealanders Dig For Kauri Gum In the Ground. Many New Zealanders find It profit able to dig for hidden treasure. That for which they dig, however, is not gold or Captain Kidd's ill gotten wealth, though it has a dull yellow color. It is kauri gum, a resinous sub stance which is the product Of the kauri pine tree. The gum can be se cured from the trunks of trees while they are alive, for It protrudes In lumps, but it Is especially profitable to dig for it in the soil about the stumps remaining after the trees have been cnt down. Sometimes chunks weighing as much as 100 pounds are taken up from the ground. Digging for kauri gum is profitable, for the gum is used In the manufacture of varnish, and apparently it is one of those products of nature whose place cannot be filled by anything else which bas yet been discovered. It has been found that it can be used In certain enamel paints, and this has had the '(Tect of bringing the demand up to a point above the supply. ' The kauri pine is a magnificent tree. It rises as straight as a needle to a height of from 150 to 200 feet and ottains at times a diameter of fifteen feet. It is noted for its dark, dense foliage and is much used for masts for vessels constructed for the British nary. Chewing and Dyspepsia. The lean dyspeptic, taking a mouth ful of chop, chewed it interminably. "Forty chews," he paused to say, 'for every bite." And his jaws began to grind again. "You make me laugh," his compan ion, a physiologist, returned. "Meat requires littlt if any, chewing. You must have wasted a lot of chews in your time." . "Co onf It's true. Vegetables require chew ing, for they are digested largely by the alkaline mouth juices, but meat is digested by the acid stomach juices, and to chew it more than enough to make it go down easily does harm In stead of good. The mouth alkalis, ad mixing with It, hinder the stomach ncids work. "Chew vegetables indefatigably, my friend, but let your meat slip down tin ground." New Orleans Times-Democrat.

In Greek "Idiotes" began by meaning a private individual, as ap posed to the state or to a state olheial; then it meant a nonexpert or layman and Snally an Ignorant man or an awkward fellow. It-was left for Eng lish to carry the meaning further to mental deficiency. In "Piers Plow man an "idiot" is an ignorant per son, and as late as 1G9S it could mean b person who knew only one language. Wyclif and Jeremy Taylor used It in Ihe sense of "layman." and the latter also in that of "private person." And n professional "fool" or jester was at one time an "idiot" too. Some Notes on "Origins." "Tlumpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall," etc., has come down to us from the days of Kiug John. "The Babes In the Wood" dates from the -fifteenth ceu tury, being founded upon facts, an old house near Wayland Wood, Norfolk, having the whole story in carvings on a mantelpiece. "Little Jack Horner," -Little Miss Muffett," "Old Mother Hubbard," "Mother Goose" and -Goosey, Goosey Gander," are each traceable to the sixteenth century. "Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat, Where Have You Been?". belDngs to the reign of Queen Elizabeth. "Three Blind Mice" first appeared n a music book dated 1G09. "A Frogie Would a-Wooing Go'' was licensed to be sung as far back as 16G0. -Boys and Girls Come Out to Play" and "Lucy Locket Lost Her Pocket" both hail from the period of Charles II. And last of all, "Cinderel la," "Jack the Giant Killer," "Blue beard" and "Tom Thumb" were pub lished by their author, Charles Per rault. In the year 1G97. London Notes and Queries. Plain Words. Freeman, the historian. It was said, was apt to grow Irritable over matters of intellectual difference. One day he was at the Macmillaus when the con versation turned upon the subject of Ireland. Mr. Macmillan said that, for his part, he was in favor of granting autonomy. Whereupon Freeman began to growl at the use of a Greek word. "Why can't you speak English," de manded he, "and say home rule in stead of speaking Greek, which you don't know?" One of the guests flushed with anger and ventured to reprove Freeman, call ing his attention to the respect due their host and at the same time paying tribute to Mr. Macmillan's remarkable abilities. Tir.t. alt'iorrh Freeman did not apologize in so" many' words, he smoothed the matter over by a humor ous repetition of his criticism. Later some one mentioned gout. "There you go again!" exclaimed Freeman. "Why can't wc call it toe woe?" which took place some time prior to the actual celebration of marriage. These esp-; "a-ls consisted in a mutual promise of marriage, which was made by the man and woman t before the bishop .or presbyter and several wit nesses. After them the articles of agreement of marriage, called tabuloe matrimo niales, which are mentioned by Augus tine, were signed by both persons. Aft er this the man delivered to the wom an the ring and other gifts, an action which was termed subarrhation. In the latter ages the espousals have al ways been performed at the same time as the office of matrimony in all the churches abroad, and It has long been customary for the ring to be delivered to the woman after the contract has been made, which has always been In the actual office of matrimony. The ring Is a special token of spous- age. In some of the old manuals fori the use of foreign cathedrals before !

The sparrow hawk almost invariably catches a flying bird for its meal, even striking down birds as large as the wood pigeon, though usually going no higher than a blackbird. If it does not exactly swoop lika the larger hawks, yet it. must have conditions of chase of its own choosing. That is why the small birds usually mob it with impu nity when they are numerous enough to bewilder it. o'nee, however, I saw a sparrow hawk that had been molest ed for some minutes by a perfect cloud of green finches dart among them and secure a victim.
